Caption: Slender snipe eel (Nemichthys scolopaceus). X-ray of a section through a slender snipe eel, showing its long mouth and slender body. Snipe eels live at great depths in the ocean, where they swim with their mouths open and feed on invertebrates. This specimen was collected at over 2,000 meters (more than a mile down) in the North Atlantic. They have over 700 vertebrae, more than any other animal. This specimen measures 99 centimetres in length.
